Welcome to Database of the Week.  This feature from the Roland G. Parrish Library of Management & Economics is intended to give you a brief introduction to a database that you may not know, with only basic information to get you started.  Hopefully, you will be tempted to explore this or other databases.

This Week’s Featured Database:  BCC Research, from BCC Research LLC.

Find it:  www.lib.purdue.edu/parrish, under the column headed Collections, click on List of Business Databases.

Description/focus: BCC Research provides market research reports.

Start with this hint: Purdue’s subscription to BCC Research includes the categories biotechnology, healthcare, and pharmaceuticals.  The reports include current industry analysis and market forecasts.  Browsing the list of reports in each category is an effective discovery tool, but a keyword search is also an option.  Click here to see the basics of searching BCC Research, or try our new tool Guide on the Side with this link.

Why you should know this database:  BCC Research analysts have international experience.  Reports include an industry background, company profiles, and patent information. 

How this will help students:  BCC Research will expose students to the highest quality, professional research reports.
